May 9, 2017

The President of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, László Lovász, has been re-elected for another three-year term at the 188th assembly of the organization. The Academy expressed support for the Central European University (CEU), which is considered as a target of an amendment by the Hungarian government to introduce stricter control over foreign universities in the country.

According to the re-elected President, the Academy offered to mediate between the government and the Budapest-based Central European University founded by Hungarian-born American financier George Soros. He said the CEU has an excellent scientific record and the Academy would not like to see it forced to move abroad.
